We are looking forward to a fun filled year of learning!

Forest School

During the Summer Term Badgers class will take part in Forest Schools every Wednesday morning from 22nd May 2024 to 10th July 2024 (7 sessions).   During this period Badgers will only have PE once a week on a Thursday.

Forest School is an ethos which encourages children’s emotional and physical development through outdoor play, activities and exploration in a woodland environment.  The philosophy of Forest School is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive experiences and participation in engaging and motivating achievable tasks and activities fostering:

  • Independence
  • Confidence
  • Communication Skills
  • Self-esteem

These attributes have proved to be an effective foundation that raises academic achievement and is therefore an excellent way to support the National Curriculum and consolidate learning in the classroom.

Forest School takes place outdoors whatever the weather.  Therefore waterproof/showerproof clothing is essential, sensible footwear and other clothing appropriate for the weather eg hats and gloves in the cold.  PLEASE ENSURE CHILDREN BRING THEIR NORMAL SCHOOL UNIFORM INTO SCHOOL TO CHANGE INTO AFTER FOREST SCHOOL. We will undertake activities such as shelter building, bug hunting, den making, knot tying and other creative tasks.  Many activities will be spontaneous, based upon the children’s interest.  Forest School activities involve the lighting of fires and the use of tools.  All the activities are checked for safety and risk assessments have been carried out.
